Fans heading to Villa Park for the Bolton Wanderers clash this weekend can enjoy free transport, courtesy of our link-up with Zeelo.
The coach provider uses data to create custom-made coach routes that aim to cut travel times by 30%, keep fares low and, most importantly, offer the most convenient pick-up points for season ticket holders.
We launched the service with two routes at the Brentford game – and now we’re offering them for free for Saturday’s 3.00pm encounter.
They are Tamworth-Villa Park and Redditch-Solihull-Villa Park.
We have become one of only a handful of clubs to offer this service – and the first in Birmingham.
All services are run on executive coaches with air-con and leather seats.
The routes are chosen based on areas that capture a high amount of Villa fans who would benefit from a direct service to the ground.
The service will drop off at Villa Park at least one hour ahead of kick-off.
Coaches will then be waiting post-match to return fans to their pickup points.
Fans can use the code FREERIDE2 to access their free travel but they will be limited to four seats per booker.
Your ticket will be sent straight to your mobile device for easy boarding and coaches can be tracked in real time so you’ll always know where yours is.
The service is run independently by Zeelo and all enquiries about the service should be made through them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If successful, the routes will be increased across the region and could, in turn, help the journeys of over 15,000 season ticket holders.
You can book now with Zeelo.
Please be aware that this service is open to all fans, not just season ticket holders.
